(Prolonged-release capsules containing 20 mg, 50 mg or 100 mg of morphine sulphate pentahydrate)
Morphine (ATC code: N02AA01) is a major alkaloid of opium and acts on so-called μ opioid receptors in the brain. It thereby reduces the transmission of pain impulses in the central nervous system (CNS) before and after the synapses. The active ingredient is mainly used to relieve severe pain.
Kapanol® is a drug for the treatment of moderate to severe persistent pain. Due to its prolonged-release formulation, it is taken once or twice daily, depending on the prescription.
